The Violences of Men

How Men Talk About and How Agencies Respond to Men's Violence to Women

by Hearn, Jeff R

Description
`This book can be read in many different ways, for example as a research report, a discussion of research methods, an example of deconstructing interview accounts, a theoretical debate on men's violence, or a series of recommendations on professional practice. It provides a good example of how theory, empirical research and professional practice can be integrated and will hopefully encourage individual practitioners and agencies to develop more proactive responses to violence by men to known women' - British Journal of Social Work

`This is a highly readable and informative text. Men's violence towards women remains a pressing issue and texts such as this, which deconstruct men's accounts of violence and consider the links between articulating and doing violence are, therefore, highly valuable.' - Sociology
